Cowboy Morton

by Old Bone Machine

Lachlan Morton (Garmin-Sharp) rode solo over Mount Nebo and then held off a stampeding group of chasers to win an exciting stage 3 of the Tour of Utah.

The young 21-year-old Australian rider also claimed the overall leader’s yellow jersey (and a black cowboy hat).

The Garmin-Sharp team director, Jonathan Vaughters, was as excited as a new father with the win.

Great ride cowboy and a great moustache! Note, Lachlan Morton is a professional cyclist not a rodeo rider.
